Getting Milo to eat dinner has been a struggle lately. Luckily he eats like a champ at daycare. 🙄 the best audio from @itsjameskennedy @lalakent ————————- #momcomedy #honestmom #toddlermom #parentingtips #torontomoms #toddlersofinstagram #tiredmomsbelike #toddlerlife #parentingishard #momsbelike #tiktok #parentsbelike #momhumour #momhumor #funnymoms #parentingmeme #momprobs #bloggermom #sarcasticmom #momsbelike #mommeme #funnymoms #motherhood #momtruths #momstruggles #parentinghumour #parentsbelike #parentingmeme #parenting101 #myhonestmotherhood

Getting Milo to eat dinner...

It was a long weekend in Canada... and a rough one for us. I’m still getting over a sinus infection and I had no energy. We watched a lot of Toy Story, left the house just a couple times to go get groceries or go for a drive. I always feel bad for Milo when we’re not busy doing stuff on the weekends. I project my urge to always be busy doing something onto Milo (and my husband). My husband had to remind me several times that Milo was super happy to be home with us eating Veggie Straws and watching Toy Story. I know he’s right... but, mom guilt tells me otherwise. F U mom guilt. You suck.🙄

It was a long weekend...

The latest blog post was written by @sara_flint... she wrote about her family’s journey from one child to two. I get so many messages every time I talk or post about our decision to only have one child. So many couples struggle with this. “How did you know you only wanted one?” I get asked that all the time. Sara’s story is probably very relatable for so many moms out there! ❤️ Click the link in my bio for my blog or go to www.reneereina.com/saras-story

My favourite thing that I get to do through @the.mom.room platforms is connect with other moms. Share our experiences, our feelings, our ups and downs. I love when I share something that I’m experiencing or going through and a ton of moms message me to tell me they are going through the same thing. I think we all assume that we are the only ones experiencing certain emotions or struggles but, when we open up to one another we find out that all these things are so insanely common. From small things like feeling like shit when you’re trying to make dinner and your child is playing by themselves (ahem, mom guilt), or bigger things like struggling to breastfeed, postpartum anxiety, or infertility. It is comforting to know that we’re not alone in these things.

Moms feel uncomfortable talking about their struggles or the shitty parts of motherhood because they fear judgement from other moms. And, they fear judgement from other moms because other moms only share the positive.

I think a huge issue among moms (especially new moms) is that many are not comfortable opening up about their struggles (especially to other moms). It is like a vicious cycle. Moms feel uncomfortable talking about their struggles or the shitty parts of motherhood because they fear judgement from other moms. And, they fear judgement from other moms because other moms only share the positive. Obviously no one wants to be the only one saying anything negative or admitting they struggle with something. People are going to think you don’t love your children. People are going to think you regret your decision to have a child. People are going to think you shouldn’t have had a child. People are going to feel bad for your child. People are going to think you’re a bad mom. 

Shortly after having Milo, I think I just decided that I didn’t care what other people thought. Hence all my social media content and blog/podcast content. At first I felt a little awkward about sharing certain things (because I didn’t know whether other moms would relate or think I was odd, haha). But the response to so many topics I discuss is OVERWHELMINGLY positive. It became clear pretty quick that so many of us don’t want f*cking visitors after bringing home our baby, experience mom guilt over stupid shit, feel like the default parent, etc. 

I had been thinking about how to create a community of moms… a mom gang, if you will.

I had been thinking about how to create a community of moms (a mom gang, if you will) where we could chat regularly, discuss different topics together via the podcast, and of course have a private Instagram account. A no filter, no bullshit, real life motherhood kinda gang. I created The Mom Room Community through Patreon and I am so excited about it. It’s kinda like we’re sorority sisters, but instead of going to frat parties together, we have online parties that end by 9:30pm because we all want to go to sleep. And, we’re not chugging beer, we’re either sipping a glass of wine or a cup of organic mint tea.
